Phir se badhaai ho? Sounds really strange… One doesn’t know the authenticity of reports of a sequel to Badhaai Ho, the big 2018 hit starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Sanya Malhotra. There is no official announcement from its producers about any such plans. And a source from the film’s core team wondered where this was going. “We really can’t see how the story can be carried forward. Neena Guptaji’s character got belatedly impregnated. So we had Badhaai Ho. She can’t get pregnant again, can she?”
The source describes this sequel urge as a stretch. “The film becomes much more successful than expected. So why not cash in on its success?” However the Badhai Ho director Amit Sharma has nothing to do with the sequel. “Even I read about the sequel on Monday morning, just like everyone else. I am busy the pre-production of my next film with Ajay Devgan,” says Amit.
This wouldn’t be the first occasion when a director has distanced himself from the sequel to a successful film. Saket Choudhary, the director of Hindi Medium is not directing the sequel.
